On November 21 Manitou Elementary School presented a cheque for $227.00 to Katie Cares. The money was raised by three grade 3 students. The three girls had read the book Love Like Katie, and they decided that they too wanted to make a difference. They made posters and got the entire school involved, they even got the local high school – Nellie McClung Collegiate – to participate. The fundraiser was Hat Day, every student who wore a hat paid a loonie. The three girls really took the message from the book to heart, they paid it forward, thinking of others. The money raised will be used to purchase teddy bears.
Thank you to the students and staff at Manitou Elementary and Nellie McClung Collegiate for your overwhelming support!
